Ridge Road in Delhi, NY – Tuesday, December 26, 2017

Report by Kathy Carey - Ten ADK hikers came out to Ridge Road in Delhi for a hike the day after Christmas. We hiked a rolling trail through the woods and fields for 2 hours. It was cold. There was about 2 inches of snow cover and not too bad until we got to the field on top of the hill where the wind was blowing. Then we hurried back to the house for a hot soup lunch!


Gilbert Lake State Park – Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Report by Currie Marr - Based on a weather advisory of slippery roads, the Gilbert Lake hike was cancelled. The cancellation notice was posted on the ADK website and people congregating at the old-Ames plaza were told. Earlier this year only 1 ornament remained on the Charlie Brown tree. So, you can image my surprise to find the tree redecorated when I previewed the route on Monday.
